Meet Bo, the new mobile robot equipped with TeraRanger Multiflex!

Safely navigating a cluttered and constantly changing environment is not without its challenges! In this video you’ll see Bo – a cool new social robot from the team at Botsandus – performing a number of navigation and collision avoidance scenarios using TeraRanger Multiflex sensing system for robots.

Meet Bo!

Bo is a state of the art robot with advanced human-robot-interaction capabilities. Bo revolutionises customer experience across events, hospitality and retail sectors with its approachable design and large, easy to use touchscreen panel and audio interaction. The robot’s main objective is to seamlessly move through a restaurant or exhibition hall and share relevant information to customers. But to do so – without crashing into chairs, tables, walls and people – it is essential to feed Bo with information about the rapidly and constantly changing environment. To assist with this, the team at Botsandus selected TeraRanger Multiflex.

Andrei Danescu, Botsandus CEO explains; “We have integrated the 8 sensor Multiflex kit in a 360-degree configuration to perform ‘sense and avoid’ for obstacles within a 2 meter range. For us, Multiflex is a far better option than the ultrasound sensors we’d been considering. Not only is Multiflex really easy to use, but it provides a faster and more reliable stream of data.”

See Bo – and his TeraRanger Multiflex sensors – in action in this short video.

Modular sensing kit for robotics
from 109.00 ex. VAT
TeraRanger Multiflex is a modular an low-cost sensing kit. You’ll receive eight plug and play sensor modules on one flexible bus making it easy to create custom configurations and to place sensors where needed. When sensors are positioned in a configuration where crosstalk is likely, the central Hub synchronizes distance measurements from each sensor, triggering these in a sequence that avoids crosstalk. It’s the ideal – and higher performance – alternative to ultrasound for robot collision avoidance, stock monitoring and a myriad other closer range distance sensing applications, all in one convenient and easy to use kit.
